[applause] that will represent more than 2.2 million square feet of civic real estate, including buildings such as city hall, the symphony, the library, the art museum and more. it's challenging to retrofit some of the buildings for energy efficiency and water conservation but we have done it. once lead certified the civic center re
is that the mayor at that time, mr. gavin newsom, along with the controller, mr. ed harrington who later became the general manager of the puc undermined the revenue bond oversight committee so they would have complete control over the monies and eliminating public oversight. the proof of the pudding the deck was stacked with staff members from the puc to contract with the city services auditing division of the controller's office. so what happened, the result was the fox was guarding the hen. >> supervisor, if i could ask you a question, so you are able to finish your comments. >> i appreciate it. >> i would like you to explain a little bit more what if you can go through your remarks in terms of what you were trying to say there? >> i don't want to take away from the other people here and i certainly -- you know exactly what i'm saying. this was a political move to get complete control of those monies without any independent oversight. now i appreciate your effort to extend this committee, but let me be very clear here. this is not the committee i had in mind when i wrote the legislat
this building came to be, in many ways it also included mayor gavin newsome, particularly, who really had an affectiofor this building. he saw the design. he saw the potential. he wanted to make sure that that building got built. and he said, do what you need to do, but please, if you can make that building work, we need to have that building in civic center. >> i happened to be at a green conference santa clara. he said you shouldn't cancel that project. can you work with us? michael cohen phoned me up the next day. can we cut $40 million out of this project? it was one person more responsible than any others, it's tony irons, was the architect that was responsible for the revitalization of city hall who came to my office and said, we cannot abandon this. we can't walk away from this project. we have an opportunity to really take a lot of our values and principles, particularly raising the bar as we did as a city on our green building standards, mandating the most aggressive green building standards for private construction anywhere in the united states. and showcasing them in this new
. lieutenant govern gavin newsom would step in as acting governor if he becomes too ill. the surviving rate for localized prostate cancer is more than knife%. -- more than 95%. >>> the homicide rate in san jose is the highest it has been for years. this afternoon a woman's body was discovered lying on city streets. police are investigating the city's 44th homicide that happened late yesterday afternoon. a 16-year-old was shot and killed outside a crashed car. there is concern that the recent spike in crime is the result of the police department being understaffed. >> staffing of the san jose police department is the lowest that it's ever been. and there are fewer officers to patrol in the city that is the 10th largest in the united states. the folks out there intent on committing crime, they hear all this! and i think they get emboldened, and there's a sort of bradenness that some of them are -- brazenness that some of them are committing these crimes in daylight. >> they are actively searching for new police officers and a police chief. it's a good idea for neighbor to be get to know one

, really trying to improve on what we've done already. back in 2009 then mayor gavin newsome to the light of all of us had introduced that we ought to really establish some guidelines to open up our city's data. and in the year later, the board, less legislation, the first open data legislation in san francisco that made us cutting edge throughout the country, the first to come out and say to everybody in the public, to people who wanted to create businesses, wanted to look at the city with kind of an open invitation to involve themselves with what the city had. and part of that really neat understanding was that we were holding onto so much of our own data in our own silos with our own very focused obligations that we had, and not realizing that if we had released that data to the public, we could really allow them to help us create even more efficient government, along with some very good entrepreneurial efforts that are reflected in today's announcements and some of our partners that are here today. so, three years later, after announcing this and after doing the first generation of op
, under the leadership of gavin newsom, under the urging of our small business leaders. the mayor heard there was a need for the community to have a small office to help the needs of our small businesses in san francisco, help them understand and navigate the complex structure in getting a business opened within the city and county of san francisco. initially, primarily, we were going to be about helping you understand licensing and permitting requirements, but, really, shortly after we open our doors, we understood that we were also, as a government entity, a place for people to come when they want to know about loans, about writing a business plan. where to go to do that, where to go to get assistance. we are also a resourced. when we do see people in our office, many of them are a year or two out from even opening their business, so we will ask them what their credits for is, have they done their business plans, do they know what they're capital needs are going to be, how much money they have, how much money they are going to need to open their business. based upon those questions, w
